New Queen

Hi, I'm new to this forum and caught a queen ant, but I can't tell what she is. I live around Houston, and she looks like a pogernomerex queen or acromermex queen. But I can't tell. Also since I'm new, I have no clue how to put pictures so you can see what she is! She has a black gaster, and a red body. I'm worried she might be semi claustral because her gaster is relatively small, and I don't want her to die! Help!

Make an account on imgur.com and post the link to your picture there. Also, Acromyrmex queens are maybe 3/4 of an inch long, and Pogonomyrmex queens are more normal sized.
